Boarding Parties

A couple of stands to represent RN boarding parties or sailors with small-arms put ashore

For CD3 the count as 'other' so of limited use, expecting special scenarios.

Japanese Project

Another regiment towards my goal of a division

Most manufacturers represented

I had enough Hong Kong 'knock offs' to include companies in travel march and human wave assault formations

I have about five battalions in my collection and the extras I'm working on will cover most OOBs 1939-45.

A really nice model by David Russell...

This will eventually form a company

Superb track detail. The whole vehicle is easily one of Dave's best builds, with thoughtful extra details

Either Italeri or Dragon.... I think ?

Strelets just keep getting better and better.

WW1 British Infantry (tropical dress)

Nice little set by HaT

I managed enough stands to make a regular rifle battalion, and an independent maneuver company

A couple of minor adjustments to the machine gun figures

Painted with Vallejo and Tamiya acrylics 

About time I finished a project to show you :)

Something in 1/35

A gift from my friend

I may even expand it to include a diorama and add some figures. Never made anything this scale before.

New digs, end game

Final scenes...

two companies of mech infantry injected some new life into the Soviet advance

British air-power reigned supreme for about three-quarters of the game. Meteor is Airfix

The Soviets got a single jet on the last of ten turns. Russian advances had only just made contact with the British second line of defenses. Bit of a throw together this one, but still... one you miss out on is one you never catch up on  :)

New digs, first game

My new neighbour is an old friend of fifteen years, who just happens to play CD3

Dave's ultra table is now in residence at my place, me and neighbour (Ash) just couldn't wait, so here are a couple of pics from a game we've thrown together. In this case 60s cold war

AFVs here are Airfix and S-Models

Played 6 turns so far with the Soviets (me) taking lots of damage. To be continued...

Mostly Ultima Ratio figures with a few ring-ins

Chindit figures, but based as 1944 British infantry battalion for CD3

Almost finished :)
